Medication administration is a complex process and prone to errors. This review was conducted to identify predictors and incidence of medication administration errors (MAE) in African hospitals. Most predictors were at the system level (e.g., work environment, interruptions), followed by patient and professional/provider factors. As the number of included studies was low (13 studies) and most came from one nation, additional studies are needed.
